Our vision of retirement may still be clouded with the anticipation of additional expenses such as college tuition for your kids, wedding costs, and expenses of replacing your vehicles and repairing your home. Saving for retirement is still on your to-do list.
Prioritize Saving for Retirement
Start seriously thinking about making saving for retirement a priority. We know that you have competing expenses hitting your paycheck. Prioritizing retirement savings first will help you to envision your future income goals sooner. Make retirement savings number 1 on your to-do list. You are still 15 to 25 years away from retirement, but now is the time to ramp up your savings.
Your 40s is also the time to evaluate your life plan. Do you have a will established? Do you have additional retirement plans held elsewhere? Do you have enough life, car, and home-owner's insurance? Did you pay yourself first in retirement savings? These are the questions you need to ask yourself so you can make a plan.
